High Shine Eyecolor - null
This is the best eyeshadow I have ever bought
I bought the "Gold Medal" eyeshadow and it is flawless!!!! It goes on your eyes really easily and is not too much color. It is the perfect shine and the color really looks nice! I really recommend everyone to get this. I got the last on at the store I bought it at, so that means a ton of people bought it/loved it! Hope this helps!
Awesome All Days Stay BUT very messy
I absolutely love the quality of this eyeshadow... I use the Moonshine, Luster and Frost. My favorites are Frost & Luster.. than again they're also alot easier to clean away than the Moonshine (A deep purple). When I use the Moonshine I put it on the outter edge of my eyelid. After applying it, I look like I just got into a brawl lol and now I have 2 black eyes. It's very time consuming to clean up.. Especially since the eyecolor is meant to STAY.. That's where I'm not so favorable about this product.. so I've learned that with any deeper colors of this line, apply your eye color 1st!!! And do the rest of your face after. Or you will end up either A- Doing your make up twice. (which we all know that we cherish every single mineral of our make up so we don't want to waste it ;) ) B- Looking like you just got knocked out lol C- Spend countless minutes trying to get it off your cheeks and under your eyes (Probably making you late to work or where ever you are going) And Last but not least.. D- YOU ARE NOW IN A BAD MOOD... lol And we don't want that. So as we have all encountered some kind of flaw in such an awesome eye shadow, We can all help each other here with our own personal tips & tricks used to avoid these bad experiences. One thing that has yet to fail me on this is to apply inwards not as you would normally but starting from just say "Nose to ear" direction.. I go backwards now and no longer dread using my favorite eye shadows anymore. And have actually purchased more since mastering the application process.. wish you ladies the same luck!!
I love these
I went to the Bare Minerals boutique and bought some of these. I asked the lady at the store to actually show me the best way to use them. So she told me the best way was to tap the top of the lid down a couple of times, then if you have a loose eye shadow lid nearby put a tap a little bit of it into the lid and apply it with an eye shadow brush, then you won't have a mess. So that's how I applied mine and I never had any kind of a mess at all. I also don't do over my entire eye. I apply my eye shadow and the do a small line of it below my bone.
Like nothing else out there.
I bought one of these colors and was not sure that I like it,but you know what I looove it. I have bought just about every color in the group, I actually think they should make more. I don't have any problem with fallout. I type off any access and you a eye shadow brush to blend in the color to give me a lite from within look, and it looks great. I can use it day or night and it is quick and easy to apply, once again BE makes another great product.
I have 3 colors love it
I wear a primer so that might be why it never smudges or smears. I put a little on my lid and blend with a brush. I am about to order another color. I use this a lot of days for work they blend beautifully with each other or other shadows.
Love the color, hate the mess!
I got this a while ago and had a love/hate relationship with it. I loved the color (golden copper). It was beautiful and lasted throughout the day. The only problem was the applicator was terribly messy. I had to tap (and the word tap is putting it lightly) the applicator to remove the excess a lot. My husband was willing to drive me to the store and buy me another eye shadow to get me to stop using this because he hated listening to the excessive "tapping!" Still after trying to get the excess off of the applicator, I would end up with a couple of tiny drops of shadow on my cheeks after application. Those tiny drops go a LONG way. If I tried to just wipe it away, the shadow would be all across my face. It was awful. That was before I finally gave in to putting my eye make-up on first followed by face make-up because I would have to re-do my face every time! Pro (like all BE shadows) it applies and stays. Con it is terribly messy and not a tiime-saver at all. Will not ever buy again.
Does exactly what I'd hoped
I'm in my 50's, so a high shine product is not my best look except for the inner eye corner to provide illumination and brightness. I've been using a competitor's product for that purpose with great success, and this works just as well if not better. With the color I chose, which is Ice, you don't see any color per se; it's a neutral frost (although darker skins might actually see the pink cast). I would never use the sponge applicator; it's simply too big and applies too much product, which is why I knocked off a star. I use my own brushes to control the application, and I suggest starting with the tiniest possible amount as this packs quite a wallop in shine. If you're going to use this where you want it to be obviously there (e.g., across your brow bone or lid), I'd use a clean sponge applicator to control the powder and prevent it from getting all over under your eye. I was taught long ago that the really frosty powders apply better with a sponge on the eyes and have found that to be true.
my fiance is SOOOO annoyed with me, because im so addicted to this eyeshadow! i already bought 10! i love the colors, they go beautiful with my brown eyes! my fiance even loves the eyeshadow, and you know its good when a man compliments on makeup... the applicator is annoying, but i just put a little on my lid, and smudge it around my entire lid with my smudge brush and blend blend blend! it doesn't bother me! did i mention how much i love this eyeshadow?! :D
Nice shimmery eyeshadow!
I bought this for my mom for her birthday because she doesn't like to spend as much thorough time applying eyeshadow, and because it was an eyeshadow with wand/swab altogether and good for travel it worked out great. She got the moon...something color? It's a purple one, I just can't remember the name of it now. Moonshine? not sure. But it looks beautiful, and if you want a more intense shadow look this is really quick and easy to get it. The original formula eyeshadows you usually have to wet or keep building for that foiled look or an intense sheen/sparkle. You don't with these! Just a few swipes and youre ready. Just wish they would keep making more colors for this. But I love the original formula too. Overall pretty good product!
Love the color but...
I really love this shadow...however...I hate the applicator! It is way to big and thick and makes for a very messy application so I use one of my smaller applicators that I have had on hand. This applicator is so big it makes it difficult to get it on your eyes plus is makes it messy! It really needs to be made much smaller and thiner. Other wise the shadow is great lasts a long time and you don't need much of it!
Gold medal a winner!
I love (love!) Gold medal. I know the sponge applicator is a pain with other colors, but I find it great with this one because it is so light. I use it as a highlighter for my brown as weil as my inner eye, or just when I don't want to put on a full face to brighten me up.
I got this eye shadow in a kit. I love the high shine, but hated the bottle and sponge applicator. I have a double ended BE brush in which I use the smaller end to stick in the bottle to apply it. I find this much easier apply and control without getting the excess dusting on my face. Would have been better if was packaged like the regular shadows.
Love this eyeshadow!
I agree with some of the other reviewers that this can be a bit tricky to apply. You only need a tiny bit to swipe on your lid. It goes on very smoothly, but you need to tap the excess off of the sponge tip before you apply.
I have this shadow in 4 different colors. You need to be extra careful with the Vapor color as it is dark and if any of it flakes off the tip and gets on your face then it will smear when you try to wipe it off. I recommend using a tissue under your eye when applying.
All in all this stuff is great. It's a time saver and blends easily with other shadows. I like to use a light colored shimmer color between the crease and brow line and then use the high-shine color on my lower lid. Then gently use the blending brush to get a nice blend in between.
This stuff is great, I think if you're not used to make up than this isn't the right thing for you. I use the copper one as the base for a lot of my daily looks and it's wonderful. The trick is to TAP off the access from your sponge tip and GENTLY swipe it once on your lid and blend with your fingers. If you take the sponge tip and just try to wipe it directly on your lid you will have a hot mess, and fall outs will be everywhere.
Overall I really love this makeup, and I recommend it and I also recommend you be VERY careful with it too.
best thing ever!
I love this eye color so much!! the shade glisten is muted enough I can still war it to junior high without looking like I'm going to a party. I don't wear a primer and I have never had a problem with it smearing. you do have to be carful when you put it on make sure you don't get sparkles everywhere, but its still the best thing ever!
I don't wear much eye shadow, so when this came as a free bonus with one of my orders I was looking forward to trying it. The first time I tried to use the sponge applicator it comes with. YUCK. Went on way too thick and I was unable to blend it at all; washed my face it and took forever to come off, plus it smeared all over my face. A few weeks later I thought I'd give it another try, so I applied some Prime Time and then used a fan brush to apply it as an eye liner. Even though I barely got any color on the brush, it went on beautifully this go 'round.. only by the time I'd finished my mascara the eyeshadow was everywhere. I thought maybe I'd smudged it; carefully wiped around my eyes and out we went. Less than an hour later my husband was telling me to do something about it, and it takes a lot for him to tell me what to do with my makeup. It was everywhere. I don't touch my eyes- I have worn contact lenses for 20 years and learned early on to keep my fingers out of my eyes. So how the heck this got all over my face is beyond my understanding. I'm glad this was free, as I would have returned it had I paid for it!
Purchased the color Vapor
I was looking for a deep grey color and purchased Vapor because the description said gunmetal grey. This color is a bright metallic blue and no where near grey!
Love the staying power and ease of application but I was looking for a true grey so I will be returning it.
Must Have More
I got this at a sample in my foundation auto delivery. I do not use an eye primer but I do apply my BE foundation to whole face including eyelids. I use the applicator to dot this shadow onto my lids. Then I use a separate make up brush to sweep it onto the entire lid. The applicator is wide and cannot get into corners. I usually use a bush to apply shadow. This shadow is definitely High Shine as named. I love it and wear it all day. It really makes my eyes stand out. It's a knock out when combined with the BE volumizing mascara. I have had no problems taking this product off. I wash my face at night with cleanser as usual and it all comes off. I have had no problems with it falling onto my face and smudging either.
I wouldn't buy this product
I recieved a free sample of this stuff, I have to say I would NEVER buy this product. I don't write reviews and I came on here just to let you know, this stuff gets EVERWHERE! Even if you are careful in application by the end of the day it'll be smudged all over your face. One day at work a co-worker asked "are you ok?what happened to your eye?" I went to the mirror, it looked like I had a black eye. This stuff not only smudges all over your face, it also will NOT come off without cold cream, so If you make a mistake with it you have to start your WHOLE face over! Save yourself the aggrivation.
Love These, but has a learning Curve
I love that these give you the look of the "Foiled" look without the mess of water and such. However, there is a bit of a learning curve. The packaging is great, but you really must make sure you wipe off any excess or it falls off the applicator and onto your face. I love the Moonshine color. I recently received Vapor. I love the grey/blue color. However, if it falls underneath my eyes and smudges, it looks like I got punched in the eye. So I have to be very careful with the application. The final result though is SEXY, SEXY, SEXY!! =D
I have 3 of the high shine eye colors. I love all 3! I have meteorite, moonshine and goldmedal. I use goldmedal to tone down some darker eyeshadows that I have; it gives such a nice golden shimmer as well!! Meteorite is a gorgeous color-yes it is on the darker side but I use a shadow brush to tone down the color. I use moonshine to bring out the different colors in my hazel eyes; it is a beautiful color!! All 3 mix together very well! They are so easy to use..perfect to throw in your purse for touch-ups! I can't wait to get the 2 other colors that I ordered!!!
If you are looking for a smoke effect get the Vapor. If you are looking for more of a day time look stick with a super light color. My make up delivered arrived and as always I could not wait to try it on so I went into the bathroom to apply vapor and then spent the next 15 mins scrubbing it off my eyes. Good news it has staying power.
Wow that's color!
Though I usually stick to more subtle shades, I decided to switch it up and give meteorite a shot. It is a beautiful color that is very intense. I like it a lot, but it isn't an every day look (at least for me). I am happy with it and will probably try other colors in the high shine line.
Going to what the first rater said, it is a little smudgy, but I think you get a more even tone and better texture by dotting and smudging a little. The brush it very wide and it would take a real pro to line your bottom lid with it.
I have not intentionally purchased an eyeshadow in the past several months because I have so many. Then I spotted these High Shine eyeshadows, especially the one in Meteorite, and I was immediately taken! These shadows have a beautiful sheen and texture. I'm a bit perplexed with the previous review, however, because my shadow doesn't budge in the least bit. I do wear an eyeshadow primer, so maybe that's the difference between my experience and the previous reviewer's. I highly recommend these beauties!
Smudges all over eye lid and under lid ... If this was my first purchase from Bare Escentuals it would be my last...someone should go back to the drawing board on this one!
